Frequently asked questions for Jardiance 25mg Tablet
Frequently asked questions for Empagliflozin
Yes, Jardiance can be used with insulin. However, it is may cause hypoglycemia (low blood glucose levels) when used with insulin or sulfonylurea group of anti-diabetics. So, a regular monitoring of blood sugar is important when they are used together.
Yes, Jardiance can be taken with metformin. A combined use of the two medicines can significantly improve blood glucose levels and glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and help in weight loss as compared to when either of the medicine is taken alone.

Q. What effect does Jardiance have on patients with kidney disease?
Jardiance is not recommended for use in patients with moderate to severe renal impairment with eGFR (estimated glomerular filtration rate) less than 60 mL/min/1.73m2. It may cause an increase in creatinine, phosphorus and parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels and can cause fall in blood pressure (hypotension). So inform your doctor if you have an underlying kidney disease before taking this medicine.
Q. Can I take Jardiance and glimepiride together?
Jardiance and sulfonylureas like glimepiride, gliclazide, glyburide or glibenclamide can be taken together as it can help in better control of blood sugar levels. Use of Jardiance can also help in lowering the risk of weight gain caused by sulfonylureas. However, the risk of low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia) can increase. Consult your doctor as a dose adjustment may be needed when they are used together.
Q. Which is the difference between Jardiance and sitagliptin?<br>
Both Jardiance and sitagliptin are anti-diabetic drugs, but they work in different ways. Jardiance is reported to be more effective in controlling blood sugar levels and also help in weight loss while sitagliptin is weight neutral. They also differ in their side effect profile as the use of sitagliptin is associated with nausea, nasopharyngitis, and pancreatitis while Jardiance commonly causes urinary and genital tract infections.
Q. Is there any benefit of taking Jardiance and canagliflozin together?
No, it is not advisable to take Jardiance with canagliflozin. Both belong to the same class of anti-diabetic drugs and work in the same way. Together they may be more efficacious but there could also be an increased risk of side effects caused by them.
Q. What effect does Jardiance have on weight?
